"Sopranos"-creator David Chase had his feature directorial debut "Not Fade Away" October 4 at NYFF, to mostly positive response from the early reviewers (catalogued below). Rather than chronicle the rise and fall of successful rock group, "Not Fade Away" tells the story of a band that didn't quite make it in the 1960s. Critics note that the political and contextual backdrop fall second fiddle to young romance and family struggles in the movie. While the history is a little messy, everyone agrees that the music is great.
